Fliers’ Shopping Choices Are Growing at Airports

March 28, 2013 by · 1 Comment 

It’s a trend that’s happening worldwide, including in the United States. Airports everywhere are improving shopping options for travelers. They’re branching out from the standard newsstand and souvenir shops to include more mainstream and high-end retail stores.

With all the flight options in existence for the average traveler, many people now have options when it comes to which airport they travel through when getting a connecting flight, and airports are realizing that a streamlined travel experience is just the jumping off point with what they must offer travelers in order to remain competitive.

The demand for airports with more is a function of the meeting of capitalism and industry — if a traveler has an option in connecting flight airports, they would likely choose the one that is known for its live entertainment, excellent shopping, speedy wifi, unique restaurants, or some other defining quality.

Travelers with early arrival times, longer layovers, or delays have come to expect an array of options in food and entertainment, and airports are now becoming more creative in how they deliver value to their customers.

For example, the Nashville International Airport is known for its live country music played by local artists trying to make it big, in addition to cameos by country music stars, of course. Vancouver International Airport will have an entire outlet mall next to the airport in 2014, while Denver International Airport is planning a complete overhaul, with long term plans including mixed-use developments with shops, restaurants, offices and residences.

When examined as part of the bigger picture, we can see that airports are realizing that they’re in the business of customer service, competing with other airports as well as nearby shopping centers. Airports are now treating themselves more like a business, competing for consumers’ dollars just like any other shopping center would. They’re maximizing the value of their property by making it multi-functional. Airports are obviously travel hubs, but now they’re becoming social and shopping hubs as well.
